Redhot Sportfishing is currently unable to accept reservations on FishingBooker. But don't worry we've found some great alternatives for you nearby.

RedHot Sportfishing operates out of the prestigious sportfishing town of Cabo San Lucas, running charters with one clear goal: to make sure you get the best Baja sport fishing adventure possible. Whether that means heading offshore in search of monster Marlin or fishing the shallows for Roosterfish, the RedHot team are here to make it happen.

You will be fishing aboard the “El Bandito”, a 29’ Blackfin sportfisher which was freshly restored in 2017 and can carry six guests in comfort and style. The boat features the latest electronics and navigational equipment to get you on the fish, a full spread of outriggers and downriggers to let you target them all, and a fighting chair for battling the biggest the ocean can throw at you.

The Bandito is kitted out with a wide range of rods and reels for various different weights. Your trip will focus mainly on trolling but you can always change things up if the situation presents itself. The Bandito has a range of quality lures to mimic whatever the fish fancy that day, as well as tuna tubes and a livewell to keep your bait fresh, however big it is.

The great thing about fishing out of Cabo San Lucas is that you can get offshore in search of big pelagic species without having to spend half your trip traveling. Even on a half day trip, you will be able to target some awesome fish like Mahi Mahi and Yellowtail and on a full day, you will have plenty of time to troll the deep in search of the very best billfish.

All trips come with tackle, lures, and a seasoned crew who will clean and fillet your catch for you. On all-inclusive trips, you will also be supplied with fresh live bait, fishing licenses, lunch, and drinks, so all you have to do is turn up and get ready for the ultimate angling adventure.
